Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made a new appeal for calm on the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday and said he believes the United States would prefer a diplomatic resolution to the standoff.

Earlier, US Vice President Mike Pence warned North Korea not to test the US, adding his country's "era of strategic patience" with Pyongyang was over.

Since entering office, President Donald Trump, like his predecessor, Barack Obama, has pressed China to use its political and economic leverage over North Korea, its once-close ally.

China's top negotiator for North Korea's nuclear program, Wu Dawei, held talks on the missile shield and North Korea's recent actions during a visit to Seoul last week.

And Guardiola stated that their priority now is to clinch a Champions League spot. He said: "We have a lot of attractive things left to fight for this season".

Guterres singled out the countries "in the front line" of contacts with North Korea - the U.S., China, South Korea, Russia and Japan - and said everybody involved should "make sure that everything is done for the threat represented by the development in relation to missiles and in relation to the potential for nuclear capability not to become a threat to the worldwide community".

"We appreciate the challenging times in which the people of Japan live with increasing provocations from across the Sea of Japan", Pence said.

A North Korean mock video appears to show missiles hitting the United States and leaving the country engulfed in flames. "But meanwhile, we carry on normal economic exchanges and trade with all parties including North Korea", Lu said.

Diplomats said the US -drafted statement would strongly condemn the launch and express the council's "utmost concern" at North Korea's "highly destabilizing behavior and flagrant and provocative defiance" of council resolutions. Wang told reporters that although US officials have made clear that a military strike remains on the table, he believes that Washington would still prefer to de-escalate tensions through multi-sided talks.

North Korea on "Maximum Alert"
USA officials have long speculated that North Korea could soon stage another nuclear test or carry on with missile tests. The new forum for trade talks was launched by Trump and Abe during the Japanese leader's visit to the U.S.in February.

Abe said Japan likewise hopes for peaceful dialogue with Pyongyang, "but at the same time, dialogue for the sake of dialogue is valueless".

Although the exercise is regularly scheduled and was planned months ago, North Korea often sees such training events as a prelude to war and responds with threats.

Pence spoke with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Finance Minister Taro Aso, among others.

"We would like to seek the best shape and forum for our bilateral relationship", Pence said. "The TPP is a thing of the past for the United States of America". With no USA trade representative yet in office and other key positions still unfilled, such nitty-gritty discussions will have to come later.
